Always block when raining

Reported via desktop in the Road and Pavement Issues category anonymously at 16:07, Saturday 19 June 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

This has been reported last year,but was told it is just leaves.As you can see, this part of road is significally lower tha others,whenever it is raining, it is blocked, so many passing by children from highfield would walk on this pavement, and whenever a car passing by ,will cause lots of water splashing on children, coucil need to work on this, to increase the height,so water wont build up

  • Thank you for your update. Our drainage contractor has attended on Monday to clean and jet the gully whilst checking the connection. LBB will await their findings and carry forward and remedial repairs required for the connection to the main public surface water sewer. If there is no fault detected, then the issue is caused by the camber in the road. Options to remedy the situation in this regard will be explored and furthered by our Highways Department upon referral. LBB - Neighbourhood Management. 13/10/12
